Someone Like You by Roald Dahl

I haven’t read a Roald Dahl book since I was a kid so it was nice to read one of his adult books.

I took this book on holiday with me and it was ideal with a collection of short stories to dip in and out of.  Plenty of twists and turns and suspicious people to keep you interested.

It was interesting how much of Buckinghamshire features in the stories. As a child I’d never heard of Buckinghamshire but as an adult I’ve spent a fair bit of time visiting the Chiltern Hills so I could almost picture the places in the stories.

I would definitely recommend it, especially if you enjoyed his books as a child. This book was given out as part of World Book Night to be forwarded on and chart its travels so I hope the next person enjoys it as much.
